Magento 1.9 transfer from one server to another,as follow all steps such as(all file transfer, database import, change URL in database, database name change in .XML file and last clear cash), after that when we refresh webpage than automatically start fresh Magento installation process. so please help me!, what can i do?
Usually if Magento goes to a fresh installation screen it points to a missing or unreadable
app/etc/local.xml. This file is responsible for the database connection and cache setting, if one is not found Magento assumes this is a fresh setup.
I'd make sure
app/etc/local.xml exists and is readable by the server (Is correctly
chown'd and is under
chmod, example commands below)
sudo chown www-data:www-data app/etc/local.xml
sudo chmod 644 app/etc/local.xml
You can try below methods: 1. Check DB and its permission with the db user 2. Debug by changing the db name in the local.xml and then you will see the report error and just check that error inside var/report directory.
